2:02am
another storm moving in the pacific northwest and california. this is the main event millions of people live here millions of people traveling to get home. low pressure system is centered across the great lakes, the cold front associated with it moving across the northeast. that low will move into canada and the front will push offshore later on today. for now anywhere from philly to boston very messy. a lot of folks heading to the airport. it will be a very trying morning unfortunately on all of the major airports across the corridor. that low moves into canada and the associated cold front will push out pretty quickly. by today around 9:00 a.m. moving nort new york city and by 3 p. mchl the bulk of the rainfall will be in new england and the snow. we will see the leftover snow across the great lakes. in some cases we could see a
2:03am
foot of snow. by saturday and sunday out of here but ladies so man fee people are trav-- many people a travelling it will be a trying day on the roadways and airport. people may have to delay travel plans for the weekend. >> what a mess. >> want folks to be careful while they are traveling especially driving. >> it is time for the 5@5:00. we begin with another developing story. one of the two bank robbers we told you about, one of them has been busted. police just arresting 37-year-old joseph banks. we are waiting to get details about where this guy was caught. you remember the story banks and kenneth connelly broke out of prison by tieing bed sheets together and scurrying down nearly 20 stories until they got to freedom. >> today marks one week since the massacre at newtown. at 9:30 president obama holds a
2:04am
moment of silence at the white house for the 20 children and 6 adults at sandy hook elementary in connecticut. investigators are saying it could take months to figure out why shooter adam lanza went on the deadly rampage. >> the house committee says shelly burke levi lated house rules and laws by using her position to benefit her husband's medical practice. no action is needed since she cooperated she is now retiring after 7 terms. >> hobby lobby lost appeal after being exempt from the obama care requirement the morning after pill. it will goes against the principals of the owners. they plan to take the case to the supreme court. it is one of 42 legal actions since the requirement took effect. >> nasa taking a page from buzz
2:05am
light year? >> to infinity and beyond. >> well, of course that's toy story character buzz light year. this is prototype of nasa space soot. it is design to do allow mast naughts to mo around more easily. it is set to debut in 2015 schl our boys will like that one. brand new development in the battle to avoid the fiscal cliff. late last night house republicans opted not to vote on a plan b. with all of the detail osss on doug luzader. plan b is history now it is back to the drawing board with no clear path in sight to avert the fiscal cliff. members of the house are heading home for christmas. house speaker john boehner pulled from consideration what has been described as a backup plan which would have raised
2:06am
taxes only on those making at least a million dollars a year. it became clear that he just didn't have enough votes in his own caucus to get it passed. he ran into stiff opposition from some republicans who say the root cause of the nation's problems is over spending. >> i would say we have different ideas and thoughts on approaches to this problem and we couldn't get enough census. i oppose the the bill. there wasn't enough votes to make it pass. >> where does that leave speaker boehner? here is his statement. now it's up to the president to work with senator reed to work on legislation to avert the fiscal cliff. the house has already passed legislation to stop all of the january 11th tax increases and replace the see quest tore with
2:07am
possible spending cuts that will begin to address the nation's crippling debt. the senate must now act. here's the white house's take on the nonvote. the main priority of the president is to make sure taxes don't go up on 98 percent of americans and 97 percent of small businesses in a few short days. the president will work with congress and we are hopeful we will be able to find a bipartisan solution quickly that protects the middle class and our economy. the senate is in session today but that's it before christmas. both houses are going to be back later next week. that gives them precious little time to hammer out a deal. >> doug luzader in washington, thank you. >> that brings us to today's look who is talking. we are talking to speaker -- former speaker of the house. >> the pressure is now they say on the president to get a deal done by the end of the year.
2:08am
listen to this. >> any democrat who thinks this president can avoid responsibility for the economy in the second term completely miss understands american history. he got away with blameling george w. bush for the first time. this is now going to be obama's economy. if it goes sour it will be obama's failure when it goes south. i think president owe bhaum has been such an orator, a lecturer, so much a guy at the center of things and so much power with pelosi and reed in the first two years he really has not gotten the rhythm. he and boehner should be meeting for hours and hours and hours. we calculated president clinton and i met for 35 days all together because you got to listen to each other. you dgot to say look, this is what i got to get this is what i can't do. is there some place in here where we can work something out. it takes a lot of time. i got a sense these two guys spend almost no time in serious
2:09am
conversation. >> the markets reacting to a fact that a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff appears less likely. lauren simonetti from fox business network joins us now with more on this and other story you can bank on. the fiscal cliff looming ever closer and the markets not happy. >> what happened to all of the optimism on a positive resolution to the fiscal cliff deal. you thought we would get one and now anxiety running high that there won't be a deal by christ mass and maybe not by new years. stock futures tanked after the house did not take up a special tax measure because it didn't have support from members to pass. trading is more volatile because the volume is latighter. that's what we could see in the regular session today as many head home for the holidays. pew tours recovered a little bit but they are still down big time. so mean while facebook is considering an option where you have to pay a small fee to send somebody is message if they are
2:10am
not your friend? >> so basically if there's someone you like you want to spend them a message you can do so and you don't inundate their inbox by doing that. that's one of the thing facebook is testing. >> it's a deterrent from spamming other people if you have to pay a fee to do it. >> you can only receive one paid message a day. so that limits it as well. >> another business story that is becoming bigger now with all of the bad weather across the country shipping of people's christmas presents getting delayed. >> so much snow in the midwest yesterday which was ups's busiest shipping day of the year really messed things up. it has ups and fed-ex really watching the weather. the teams of meteorologists are working hard. so far everything has been good and smooth but if you want your gift in time for christmas it's not guaranteed with this weather. look at it here in new york. it is so wet and rainy you have
2:11am
to image it is going to be delayed. >> you may get it on time but wount have time to wrap it. >> have your bags ready with tissue. >> heather? >> even if you don't get your christmas gift by tuesday hopefully you will enjoy the christmas lights. take a look at this. 65,000 lights displays . the neighbors aren't happy. some complain it's too disturbing. the owner received a noise violation ticket. that's the question today. is this display too bright or just right? send us the comments you can tweet them at fox friends first or shoot us an e-mail at foxx

2:16am
we are at the airport. a lot of people in new york city across the country say the word winded and always kicking up. this is the last thing that people want to hear as they are heading out. they don't want to see the words delayed or canceled on the big board. but we know that to be the case for so many fliers across the country. it is because of the massive storm in the midwest. wer checking the big boards we

2:18am
american firearms flooding mexico illegally. i swear they have been sympathetic to that charge through the years. that is one of the motives of the fast and furious operations. the only conclusion i think you can draw is if the mexican government is using this particular case to make a larger point. that is when you have to apply political pressure much higher levels. mexico can do a lot of things easy. it is christmas, generosity. they can say it's a farewell president to hillary clinton. they can say whatever they want. the important thing is to get it out and later to deal with the mexican government and make it absolutely clear this conduct by them is unacceptable to
2:19am
americans. >> meanwhile lawmakers are calling for a national travel boycott to mexico until hammar is home. the time 18 after the hour. coming up a major recall for a popular pickup truck. why drivers may be left unable to see. >> then you have probably seen a lot of these products on the shelves. they promise to give you a real caffeine buzz. there's a hidden danger to some of them and some of them are-marketed to kids.

2:24am
i am a big advocate to cough fee. there are a lot of anti-oxidants great to prevent colon cancer. these are different because they get absorbed in a totally different way. kids can take them. pregnant woman can take them by accident. it can be a health hazard for your children. for your kids. if you look at these lollipops it can get sucked right through the mucosa and increases your heart rate. >> it hits you phatser than drinking the coffee. >> which is the purpose of this. everyone is looking for a quick fix. we are not a tolerant nation and they want something really fast. this c it can get you jittery increasing your heart rate. any kind of cardiac or heart condition this is not good. >> people with high blood pressure should be careful about consuming too much caffeine. >> that's right. that brings us to the point
2:25am
caffeine you can treat it as a drug. it really gets into your system. it effects your sympathetic system your heart rate and blood pressure. it can put you in an emergency room. if you have any kind of heart condition you don't want high energy high caffeinated. >> i am feeling very caffeinated this morning because i took one of these to give it a try. i am feeling awfully jittery. to your point your body absorbs it faster than a regular cup of coffee. >> it's interesting you bring this up. some of these for example if you take two strips it's almost about 1 and a half cups of coffee so it does work but it gives you that increased heart rate. the fda should really get involved in this. these products go under the radar. they don't put on the labels how much caffeine you have. >> the other concern is
